Brooklyn Nine-Nine, “Payback” review

Honestly, I had trouble figuring out what to say in this review. “Payback” is a low-key episode of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” one that I doubt I’ll remember in the months to come. While “Beach House”...

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: “Beach House” Review

At some point in time, all TV shows feature an episode that takes the characters out of their normal environment — for example, “Mixology Certification” in the second season of “Community” and “Hunting Trip”...

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: “Stakeout” Review

Before we get started dissecting “Stakeout,” it’s imperative we talk about the cold open. As the episode starts, Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) is excited to receive his medal for the Giggle Pig bust, but...

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: “The Road Trip” Review

“The Road Trip” is a strange episode of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” in large part because the main plot isn’t about police work. While this has happened before on the show, the non-police episodes were generally...

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: “USPIS” Review

Even though it’s been consistently funny, this season of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” has been up-and-down for me in terms of enjoyment. Luckily, “USPIS” is an upswing. It’s an episode that’s funny, but since that humor...

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: “Lockdown” Review

At the risk of hitting the point too hard, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” really needs to fix its problem with Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg). The fixation on Jake has been a theme throughout season two, and...

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: “Jake and Sophia” Review

This week’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” reminded me why in spite of my recent misgivings over the show’s seeming lack of interest in character development I ultimately trust these writers. “Jake and Sophia” could have been...

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: “The Mole” Review

Truth be told, I didn’t want “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” to be too funny this week because I had a cold and it hurt to laugh, but I also didn’t want it to not be funny....

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: “Halloween II” Review

It’s strange to me that two things I consistently like — Halloween and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” — just don’t seem to mix well together. Usually, I look forward to Halloween-themed episodes, but after “Halloween II,”...

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: “The Jimmy Jab Games” Review

After an Emmy-winning first season, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” has returned with a second season that to date has been hilarious and just as good as its first. Since school started so late, we’ll be starting...
